We wish to advise you that hazard reduction works are proposed in the vicinity of your property. This will consist of prescribed burning of vegetation to reduce the bush fuel and assist in reducing the intensity and adverse impact of bush fires in extreme weather conditions.


The burn will be undertaken by the Rural Fire Service and subject to weather conditions, is scheduled for


18th September - 16th October from 12:00 hrs onwards.

Baromee Hill - North Arm Cove

Bounded by Outlook Drive, Oversea Way, City Crescent and Waratah Way.

As the prescribed burn will generate smoke, hot embers and heat. It is important that you consider the following:


•Keep doors and windows closed to prevent smoke entering homes,

•Keep outdoor furniture under cover to prevent ember burns,

•Retract pool covers to prevent ember damage,

•Remove washing from clothes lines,

•Ensure pets have protected area,

•If you are driving a vehicle, slow down, keep windows up and turn headlights on and

•If you have asthma or a lung condition, reduce outdoor activities. If smoke levels are high and if shortness of breath or coughing develops, take your reliever medicine or seek medical advice.
